KTMs Adam McGill Makes it 3 in a Row
Union, SC - FRE
KTM's Adam McGill won the fourth round of the
ATV GNCC Series to make it three wins in a row.
The muddy 12-mile loop was one of the most
challenging so far. The rain poured down all day
and stopped right before the main event but left
the course quite wet. McGill, who has been known
for his good starts so far this year, had the
opposite luck when the flag dropped. "I rounded
the first turn in 18th! I just put my head down
and started to pass people," remarked McGill
about his start.
Fortunately, a bottleneck at the start of the
race helped McGill pass quite a few riders when
he saw an outside line to get around the group.
Meanwhile, his teammate, Taylor Kiser, found his
way up front and was running in the top three.
By the end of lap one, McGill had charged his
way into sixth approximately 20 seconds off of
the current leader Brandon Sommers. Then
miraculously McGill passed for the lead on lap
three and never looked back. Kiser, who had been
running the majority of the race in third, had
to pull off due to a mechanical issue.
When the checkered flag flew, McGill came around
first to take home his third win of the season
over Bryan Cook. McGill now has a comfortable
lead in the series points.
